    Virgin/Factory Default help

    Hey all.

    I have been trying to get my 3.2e Wii back to virgin state, I have been following the tutorial on the site but I have ran into a problem.

    I used the official system update and I am now on 4.2e, I used NAND clean and deleted everything it prompted me to. Now when I go to use AnyTitle Deleter it boots up and asks for version to use but then the Wii mote is unresponsive and unable to connect back with the console. I have to then use the power button on the console to switch it off and boot it back-up.

    Wiimote is fully charged and I have tried another one and also changed the batteries.

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Just wondering, why do you want to take it back to virgin state? If its cause 4.2 killed homebrew that's not the thing to do.

    If I'm not mistaken downgrading from 4.2 is a very bad idea. The virgin dogeggs guide takes you to 4.1.

    I wouldn't spend any more time with it. You've lost your cIOS so you can't remove any more homebrew things apart from deleting the channels through the Wii menu.
    Not really doing much Wii stuff these days.

    I would advise not downgrading and giving this person a modded wii.

    Ok thanks, do you think it could cause any problems in the future with updates or even if they want to softmod down the line?

    New nintendo updates will always cause a problem. Hence your pickle now.

    Does that mean even though I've removed now removed the channels with data management a Nintendo update could brick it?
